Andrea del Sarto,1486–1530, was an Italian painter from Florence, whose career flourished during the High Renaissance and early Mannerism. A number of Andrea del Sarto paintings were considered to be self-portraits. Perhaps the best known oil painting by Andrea del Sarto is the Madonna
of the Harpies. It was Michelangelo
who had introduced Vasari in 1524 to Andrea's studio. He is said to have thought very highly of Andrea's talents. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
